The view is amazing. The food is amazing. Lynn the bartender is the best. We come here often and will continue coming again and again. I had the blackened salmon salad - delicious!

The server was very friendly, the food great and the view awesome. I had the vegetable platter, it was very good; my husband totally enjoyed his burger, best on the island.

I had the fish & shrimp platter. The fried shrimp was good and the fish was ok. My husband had a crab cake and chowder; he liked both. While the food was good, it was way too pricey for the quality.

The clam chouder is the best. Their seafood is as good as any in southeast Texas. Dophins are common pace and an occasional tanker in the distance. Pelicans perch on the piers. Their fried onion is very good.

Excellent food and our waitress was a highlight of my whole trip. She was so genuine, joked with us and even named me blooming onion queen. We will come back every time in Port A

It was on the water, but was freezing in there! Even the men had on coats! The french fries were shivering! It's just one of those average places. It wasn't worth the $. Has kinda a bar atmosphere, and the condiments served in those plastic containers. The waitresses were just the norm, nothing special here for us. Won't be back.... More
